Autumn Grizzly Glamping Adventure (September 1 to October 12/19)

With the return of the spawning salmon the grizzlies are drawn to the rivers for their annual salmon feast. During the fall season we follow the salmon up the rivers by jetboat then spend the day quietly drifting down the river observing and photographing the grizzlies, eagles and other animals and birds. The salmon have come to complete their cycle of life. They have travelled back from the ocean to their birthplace where they lay their eggs for the next generation and complete their cycle of life. The bears come to the rivers for their annual salmon feast, but the salmon’s life cycle does not end with the bears. The salmon feed a host of other forest creatures like the eagles and wolves and the forest itself. Travel among the wildlife with opportunities to observe grizzlies, wolves, black bear and moose in their natural wild habitat. Early morning viewing and evening viewing ensure you get the best opportunities to see the bears and get that perfect bear photo.
